Ah the fourteenth of February, how you always sneak up on me. Spending another one single, minus all the red envelopes and roses having quite a rough month anyway! I am pleased to say today was truly wonderful. –
I admit, I am a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve: a true Leo trait. I have so much love to give, and I adore making people I care about in my life feel like a million bucks! But recently I think I have been forgetting such an important quote…
So, I have made a pact with myself. No more boys. Not before me. Not before my determination to succeed as a performer. Which means remaining strong, not falling for puppy dog eyes and restricting late nights to singing in studios and working on that Six Pack that I know is still in hibernation. This whole week I have been so lucky to have Tessa visiting from the UK. Having already had plenty of laughs, and very good food, we managed to hang out and just forget that V-Day was even a thing.
The sights of Manhattan never grow old. I look up to the sky, and the buildings still take my breath away. Even though the sun was shining, it was safe to say … I should have brought my hat and scarf!
In the words of Miss Monroe herself Diamonds and Tiffany are a girl’s best friend.
We managed to get rush tickets for Chekhovs The Present. I was so excited to witness Cate Blanchett do her thing in the flesh, and boy she did not disappoint. The first act was rather slow moving, but Miss Blanchett has a way to still engage and captivate you though little action was taking place on the stage. By the second act, before intermission the pace really picked up and we went from 0 to 100 within seconds. Intermission came, and apart from the fact I felt as If I were watching the play in an outdoor theater (my hands had even begun turning blue) we were intrigued to find out what would happen in the final two acts.
The lights dimmed, and now sat in a much warmer area of the theater the remainder of the show played out. I have to admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of the script/story, but the performances on the stage were full of depth, truth and craft. I could hear the words of my wonderful acting teacher Serena pop into my head throughout.
With only days to go before second semester commences…. I feel ready to give my all to the Musicals pre-60’s and whatever challenges I may face over the next fourteen weeks.
I guess I should share some stories since new year too …. More blogs to come.
To me, from me xo.
